Urban Sketch in Pireus

Travelling alone from the island to Athens airport I stop for 90m to draw Plateia Korai from a cafe table.

It’s a single vanishing point schema using an Rotring HB clutch pencil onto my Watercolour Moleskine book. This time there’s no plan to use penliners, just watercolour. At the final stage I used a soft pencil to outline the foreground trees and a hard pencil to emphasise the foreground lighting. This one is all about depth and detail.
